NPS to review Roseland alternatives

It is expected that the Obama administration will put the project on a “fast track” to reduce the review period.
One group, the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER), contends that fast-track treatment leaves the project subject to a lawsuit brought under the NEPA.
“I am not aware of any danger of a lawsuit regarding NEPA,” Wirth said.

The NPS completed the public comment period last week. Their decision on a preferred route for the power line will be made in October, according to an NPS source.
